from the romney campaign. there's a lot of target-rich environment for president obama. what about this tax plan. is president obama obligated to supporters to point out to them that this is flawed? what do you think? >> i think the moderators are going e to ask governor romney about a lot of the things that you just talked about. i hope the moderator gives governor romney a chance to do what paul ryan said he didn't have time to do and that is explain how they pay for a $5 trillion tax cut. as you pointed out, ed, it is a time problem that is vexing in this budget. it's a math problem. they can't pay for it. if they can't pay for it, then they are going to raise taxes on the middle class. that's what the economic studies have shown. and look, i don't know anybody who thinks we're another tax cut for a millionaire away from a stronger middle class. that's just not how we have built our economy before and it's not how we're going to continue to make our country strong now. >> will president obama confront romney on these issues or rely on the debate moderator to do it? how aggressiv

anyone execute on anything within this environment? if the projections hold true and i'm sure ben in chicago and the president won't want to accept the projections but if they hold true, we'll end up with a congress that looks pretty much just as it does today, same president, dealing with the same dysfunctional congress, house controlled by the republicans and nothing will get done and in that environment, voters not uj reasonably will say well how does this get better? >> i think that politico yesterday, ben, outlined questions or statements that might haunt the president in these debates and one was i'm going to change the culture of washington and washington's culture hasn't changed. the president would say that's no small due to the fact that republicans have been historically obstructionists but, you know, there is a sense that four more years what's it going to get you? >> i think that americans have seen a president who's always reached across the aisle throughout his career, whether that was in illinois to pass campaign finance reforms, in the u.s. senate he reached acros
with the town hall format because this is a very different kind of environment, and, you know, i think this is where romney is going to have to connect and feel people's pain and so that's naturally something that obama does well. we'll see how well romney adapts to that environment. >> i'm hoping candy crowley gets more in there. she's much more political than jim lehrer. she'll say follow up on that, answer it. >> i think she will. she will be aware of all the critique of jim lehrer that's gone on. i think mark raises a very, very good point as he so often does. the format for the next debate is a format that favors somebody who is more comfortable with people and who is a little more easy. >> can you fake it? >> well, you know, i think this is a form that -- >> can you fake it? >> i think you can fake it a little bit but not very much. i'm not sure mitt romney is going to be able to fake it. i think the president that we saw in denver the day after the debate is the president that we're likely to see in the town hall meeting coming up next time and you're going to see joe biden unle
this year all of this talk about voter suppression actually creates an environment that does suppress the vote, even if you don't pass the legislation or the legislation is not enacted. and we know that from studies that have been done. you're setting up barriers to people, real or imagined, that prevent people from going to the polls and exercising importantly a constitutional right. >> so even in the cases where the efforts to change the voting rules have been turned back by the courts like we saw today in pennsylvania, even in states where it is been fought over but the voter suppressing side has not won, you're saying people hear about that and believe they will be blocked from voting? >> yes. there's confusion. there's confusion with people who work at the polls. there's confusion with the voters. what do i need when i go? i've seen these signs. the ad campaign is continuing in pennsylvania. so people are going to be confused even if the law was blocked by the courts saying they didn't have enough time to get voter i.d. to all the people that needed it. apparently a much larger n
voters who really care about the environment and the economy. and president obama, his policies really appeal to those voters a lot more. it's interesting that now it's a five-point lead because for about six months, up until a week or two ago, president obama had a narrow one to two-point le lead, so that really shows that president obama is breaking out in some of the key swing states like colorado. >> we shall all be watching tonight to see how things go down there in denver. diana degette, thank you, i appreciate it. >>> up next, painting denver pink. planned parenthood launches an anti romney blitz in colorado. i'm going to talk to the organization's president. >>> plus, bringing sexy back. politico's jonathan allen says biden is number two on the ticket, but number one in their hearts. how the v.p. is winning over seniors. and you can join our conversation on facebook.

environment that makes it impossible to govern, that makes it impossible to bring people together because they make campaign commitments right away in a campaign environment in a polarized environment. governor romney wants to be elected president because he wants to govern and get things done. he did that in massachusetts. he was able to work with a democratic legislature -- 87% of the state house and state senate in massachusetts, when he was the republican governor, were democrats. and yet they were able to cut taxes 19 times and get things done. they improved the bond rating for the state of massachusetts, by the way. they got an upgrade. we've seen a downgrade in the united states. they saw household incomes go up under governor romney's time in office by $5,000. household incomes have gone down by $4,300 under president obama. unemployment went down to 5.6% under governor romney in massachusetts. it's gone up to above 8% under president obama. he knows how to govern. and he knows how to lay out the principle, bring people together to achieve those goals in the legislative process, a

was reading the assessments and understanding the threats he knew that this was a difficult environment to operate in as well. it's a horrible tragedy that took place and something that we hope and pray will never happen again but to make political hay and gain out of it, it really doesn't help support the efforts of our people. >> quickly i have to ask you, were you disappointed in the handling of -- ambassador rice came out with the information she had available at the time, congressman king of new york wanting her to resign, paul ryan said in a new interview he would not go that far. again, a lot of moving parts. were you disappointed in how this at least was handled if there is, in fact, now an opening for political gain or genuine questions here? >> well, i think that the attempt to make political gain out of this came forward before any facts were known. it's clear this is a strategy that's being pur sisued by the romney team and unfortunately they're continuing to look for more reasons to make an argument that president obama's foreign policy, which is hands down much more popula
. >> well, this is a tricky business because you have a coal situation and environment and all those kerns. how do you win on that argument in your state and how is mandel running that case? he seems like he's stuck with the romney idea. >> yeah, he is. and i think you win on that by, you know, you know, we've talked enough on this show, chris, and you get this better than almost anybody, that it's not liberal/conservative, left or right, it's whose side you're on. i go to belmont county and zanesville and cambridge and woodsfield and these communities in ap latch ya. they know i want to keep programs strong for veterans. veterans have a higher unemployment rate. we're always working on helping with manufacturing. there's a lot of small manufacturers in these small communities, and i want to make sure that these workers get an opportunity to send their kids to school. we have more coal mine jobs today in ohio than we did four years ago. it's not a huge number anymore, but it matters in our state, and we're seeing those -- i think those miners come around and support the president in the en
of the environment committee a climate denialist and a republican senate which could dismantle the social contract and more. >> luke, seems like scott brown has a case of the mitts that he has to trade this difficult line between conservatives, the skoo ska leah question to me was really -- the answer was weird. he seemed to rattle off the names of supreme court justices as if to prove that he knew that they sat on the bench, but wants to appear as an independent but look, mitch mcconnell is going to be his boss if he gets re-elected, a "boston globe" poll says most voters think scott blown brown is heavily influenced by the gop, 41% think he's sometimes influenced and 37% think he's independent. >> goes back to how he got elected. originally his campaign in 2010 was the democratic -- not the democratic seat, not the kennedy seat, the people's seat. that appealed to people in massachusetts who wanted to shake things up as you saw in '06 and 2010 and around the country. what his issues will be how much will he be tied to mitch mcconnell in the gop leadership. when he came here in 2010 he was the pi
in light of the threat environment, whether those systems and procedures were properly implemented, and any lessons that may be relevant to our work around the world. the men and women who serve this country as diplomats deserve no less than a full and accurate accounting, wherever that leads. and i am committed to seeking that for them. >> secretary clinton under pressure and saying that there will be a full and accurate accounting but as you have pointed out ambassador hill, they need to speed this up. they can't be bureaucratic about this. they are being requested on the hill by next week and darrell issa has shown with fast and furious he's not going to let go of this. >> that's clear. they also have to be careful not to have any more mistakes or, you know, errors in these sort of narrative of what actually happened. i think they have to be really careful but my goodness, ambassador pickering managed i think some eight embassies. if there's one person who can know something about security, it's going to be ambassador pickering. i'm sure he'll get to it very quickly. >> thank you so much
-hmm. >> the environment is such that every -- every step you take, every move you make, to quote sting, is -- everybody will be watching you. it's -- everything so focus group now. we slice and dice every nothing segments, walmart moms or office park dads or whatever and you have to get them here and you have to get them there. if you get caught up in that, i think, there is a danger of losing sight of a larger pitcher and losing yourself. and i think that's what people will be watching for tonight, they don't want a pitch at office park dads. they want -- they want the candidates to speak to the country. >> but i'm curious, michael, how many people do you think are watching, not asking for an exact number, i don't think you walk around counting folks, your idea on thoughts, how many you believe, what percentage are actually watching this debate tonight to have their minds changed or to pick a candidate or are folks watching to have an amen moment from the person they have already voted for perhaps in early voting or they plan to vote for? >> i think darn few are looking who are not already decided. wh
's a big, big question. >> for both candidates, i want to know what to do to protect the environment from big corporates? green party. >> i have a question for romney, why not pro-life? >> he is pro-life. >> no, that women's abortions, taking away birth control -- >> oh, okay. pro-choice. >> sorry. >> those terms are shorthand anyway. >> i have a question for both candidates and i want to know what you're going to do for prisons, how to clear them out, how to lower costs that effect t affect the voters. >> do you have a question? >> i have a question for romney, gop platform states they have a moral obligation to uphold to support women who are faced with unwanted pregnancies, so since he's going to be cutting programs and sending everything back to the states, and taniff is going to be hurting and we have a lot of women who look to that when they have unwanted pregnancies. who's going to do it? is he going to step up and pay the bill? >> a lot about women's health care and a lot about student loan. everybody going to vote here? that's great. we'll be back with more "hardball." well, if i
's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight, which i think has yet to begin to spin. lawrence, what do you think the expectations are on both sides tonight? >> reporter: well, rachel, in this room, there are a lot of $10,000 bets going on behind me about what the president is going to say tonight and what mitt romney is going to say tonight. i think the rules actually favor president obama because there are almost no rules. they are going to do two-minute statements, they're each going to get two minutes at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will introduce. and discussing not policing 30-second rebuttals and 60-second statements. none of that red light stuff with the clocks and all of that stuff. and when you're in mitt romney's position, where he's actually trying to hide some things, trying to hide the details of the deduction side of his tax plan, he's still hi
of target-rich environment in the holes that have been offered by the ryan plan. so i think the first thing is, let's get a great vice presidential debate and reset the stage for the president to come out and get after it again. >> ed, thank you so much. we love when we can get you in here early in the morning. >> i like it. it's good to be here. i know a lot of liberals in this country are frustrated right now. this is a bump in the road. it's not a redirect. >> ed schultz, catch him weeknights here on msnbc at 8:00 p.m. he plays for politics. thank you. >>> i just want to point out we are paying attention to what's going on in denver right now with a president obama rally scheduled for 12:05. coming up in roughly an hour. 12:05 eastern time. we'll keep an eye on that. >>> we want to bring in our debate post-game power, joy reed, we have anita dunn, former white house communications director, and john baybender who served on rick santorum's presidential campaign. gang, good to have you here. julian, you were saying yesterday don't try too hard for that moment and don't get too snippy, come
the new environment, within the new economy is an immigration issue. so even though most latinos may prioritize jobs above immigration without having an immigration process that allows parents or uncles to immigration and work in the economy, it's going to be difficult for latino families to integrate into society. >> it is widely believed that mitt romney cannot win the white house without winning florida. he has florida senator marco rubio out stumping. he is always considered a rising star. his name is always right in there. who do florida hispanics think of marco rubio? >> well, florida hispanics are really diverse. they're kind of like the country, where there's about a third of the hispanics in florida are cuban. but you also have another two-thirds that are either puerto rican or mexican or central or south american? so it's a very diverse hispanic population in florida. and the majority, the vast majority of cubans will vote for marco rubio. but when you talk about noncubans, most of them are pretty suspect, of the republican party there. >> we have some quick numbers here. t
a tough political environment and in other words they heard a template from mitt romney doing what barack obama has failed to do in the last four years. so the fact that mitt romney got to talk about a record of bipartisanship that, yes, did produce a health care law in massachusetts, but also put massachusetts number one in the country in educational rankings, that's all to the good for mitt romney. and many americans did not process that information until last night. >> this was by most accounts, and i'm sure you heard this too, congressman, the most policy-oriented debate, maybe we've ever had. at times it was pretty wonky, especially for folks following it so closely may not know dodd frank and some of the specifics they talked about. and there's also criticism of the format, that it was a little too open-ended. do you think that voters, just in general, took away something important from this or does this format need to be scrapped and to go back to the old where the buzzer hits? >> i think last night's format was very good for the american people. maybe not so good for pundits or pe

will clean up the environment. i will help with education and improve education. all of those issues we want to make sure that we concentrate on and work very hard to accomplish those things and also to cut down the budget, the budget crisis that we have. so there's a lot of work ahead. >> it's been nine years and while both men have stepped out of the political arena, former california governor, arnold schwarzenegger, is back in the spotlight, promoting a memoir called "total recall." many are calling it an apology tour. last year the former governor making headlines after coming clean about a secret affair with his family's housekeeper that resulted in a child. listen to what schwarzenegger told david gregory this morning about the indiscretion. >> it was a major screw-up, as you've said, i've hurt my wife, i've hurt the kids. >> are you a man of good character? >> i think so. >> even after everything you've done. >> look, i'm sure you made mistakes, i'm sure a lots of people out there made mistakes. i made my fair share of mistakes and that's what my book is about. >> joining me now in lo
change in the environment since the recall election versus what's going to happen in five weeks plus? >> i think it has changed tremendously, there was a huge financial advantage for the republicans and the recall. although mitt romney has now begun spending here in wisconsin for many, many weeks, it was really quiet here. and it was only after they chose paul ryan as his vice presidential candidate that he started spending money here. so we're seeing advertising for both camps, so you're also seeing a president making a concerted effort. the president's been here twice in the last three weeks. i'm very confident that he's going to win. >> bill clinton, he's a big factor in the race, he campaigned for you in the recall electi election. >> well, i think he's a great asset and you can send bill clinton anywhere in this country and people like bill clinton and they like what he stands for and i hope the president continues to use them because president clinton, what he's been in wisconsin, he's very, very popular, he's always done well here in wisconsin. i think just having him in a bat
in the washington media environment. it's not the number one issue for american -- >> real quick, i'm sorry. i watched the debate with 400 people in the room, comedy fans, regular folks, they paid $8 to watch the show, who are the 47%. we came off that tape, a week of it. those people really felt like why wasn't that addressed? they talked about it. we had a discussion. that is us. that is the biggest thing, half of the nation was disregarded by romney and that doesn't come up? wow? >> that was probably the most striking thing from the moderator, the president, mitt romney himself. he might have brought it up. he was on handy the night after it. i hope we see whoever is -- that the people who are moderating the next debates think okay, we have that territory. it's been covered. there's a lot of stuff out there that we need to get the candidates on the record on. it's the opportunity that you never have when you are covering a campaign. i would love to have every candidate and on the record of a variety of issues. peter welsh from vermont, lizz thank you for joining us this morning. >>> "the ne
a meritorious environment, right? we're already past a place where race is like the thumb on the scale, right? >> i guess i would put it differently. i would say it's not a rigid quota. it can operate as a plus factor, but to some people would be viewed as a thumb on the scale. the brief that was sort of moving to me in looking at the case going -- o the fisher going up to the supreme court, oral arguments are on wednesday, is a brief written by deans of harvard and yale. notice that harvard and yale are where anine of the justices graduated. when we do admissions, we do a holistic merit-based analysis. if we build a diverse class, racial diversity is one component of that excellence. don't take our word for it. go to mckenzie and mckenzie has done amazing consulting work with fortune 500. again, we can have queasiness about whether or not that's a metric, whether it's a social justice issue, engaging in mediation rather than this is good for the bottom line. going back to the 2003 case, the briefs moving to sandra day o'connor, it was now being swapped out by alito which is why many are worr
south and east, that we could have created an environment where we could leave and have them capable of carrying out their continued counterinsurgency missions. the fact is, al qaeda is on the rise throughout the middle east. the fact is that they believe that we are weak. they believe we are withdrawing. i talk to these leaders all over the middle east. and this is part of that scenario. look at what's happened in iraq. over 4,000 young americans, and we now have al qaeda on the comeback. anyway, go ahead, willie. >> history is what it is, senator. i think a lot of us wish we weren't in afghanistan anymore, that we hadn't lost 2,000 lives. >> but there was a way out. it's not as if it was an impossible situation. almost all of us agree there was a way that we could have succ d succeeded. >> fair enough, but we are where we are. so what would you do today? why would another year, five years, ten years change afghanistan? >> i would make a decision as to whether we had a significant number of troops listening to my military leadership to remain there to carry out an environment where
environment is it breaks down stereotypes and promotes cross-racial understanding. >> the court is likely to take up another racially charged issue, whether to scale back the landmark voting rights act. it requires states with a history of discrimination to get federal permission before making any changes in elections. but challengers say with more minorities elected nationwide, the law is outdated. >> we have african-americans, representing districts in the deep south that are almost all white. >> and the federal law called the defense of marriage act signed by president clinton. it says the federal government will recognize only conventional marriages, meaning no federal benefits in states where same-sex marriage is already equal. in the court did strike the law down, states would not be required to permit same-sex marriages but the federal government would have to recognize them where they're legal. craig, back to you. >> pete williams in washington. thanks so much for that let's switch gears to indiana and the senate race where things just got lot more interesting. a few months ago, t
,000 jobs. i don't want to kill jobs in this environment. let me make one more point -- >> let minimum answer the taxes thing for a moment. >> okay. >> mr. president? >> well, we've had this discussion before -- >> about the idea that in order to reduce the deficit, there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. >> there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. now, governor romney has ruled out revenue. >> is that true? >> absolutely. >> completely? >> look, the revenue i get is by more people working getting higher pay, paying more taxes. that's how we get growth and how we balance the budget. but the idea of taxing people more, putting more people out of work, you'll never get there. you never balance the budget by raising taxes. spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. >> okay. >> we're now spending the 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path to spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to work with more money coming in because they're working. >> yeah, but, mr. president, you're saying in order to get it -- get the job don
-to-day in a war room environment. we know what each side is saying and we're always aware of the points and we know what romney is saying day-to-day. it seemed like all three people was not aware of what romney was saying day-to-day and one was well aware but he didn't want to bring it up. like nothing happened tonight in the world we were living in. >> so it was understandable that romney would be selective about which of his positions hold 'em size which he would conveniently forget and which he would, frankly, reverse in mid debate. but if you can do that, if you can get away with it, i understand why he did it. he was allowed to. >> he just said -- how does this appeal to the right wing 37 this is health care. the president says, if nothing else happens to this president we know for health care this is what he did. here's what the chamger said tonight -- if i'm elected we won't have to rephrase obama care. we'll have the kind of principals i put in place in my own state. what does that mean? >> it means from his point of view there's other principles about romney care he believes in. tryin
did, it really comes out very powerful. you can't control the environment in the way that you could before. >> no. and we remember with hillary clinton, they were saying that obama didn't look up, but he didn't look up in that debate with hillary clinton. >> right. >> again, that is who he is. i think we are totally for getting that. >> not only that, but i think we're also for getting that both of these men, to your point, they were who they always have been, even in governing. barack obama has infuriated his own base because of this perception that he doesn't fight hard enough. >> recurrent theme. >> it's a recurrent theme. with mitt romney the recurrent theme among republicans, the reason he doesn't have a lot of frentsds in his party is the idea that he's a vicious debater. newt gingrich called him a liar in which he demolished supposedly the best debater in the republican party and he is known to be a flip-flopper. what did he do in that debate, he flip-flopped. everybody played the type. >> dedrick's point is smart about mitt romney in some ways was the beneficiary of lowered
